Chevron recently featured in the QAA review of partnerships between Irish and UK universities, being credited for its student supports and commitment to quality delivery.
One of the aims of the programme is to provide opportunities for students to develop independent study skills, so that by the end of the programme they may become autonomous learners, though students are not expected to achieve this alone.
Graduates from the programme will have a variety of career paths open to them, such as Health Service management, social work, teaching, palliative care, nursing, drug and alcohol work, community and youth work, mental health and counselling work, working in caring for the elderly, with children, and with those with special educational needs.
Chevron Training has a long history of working with other educational institutions, helping to provide learners with the highest quality and most up to date training programmes.
